Billy Reid Heirloom Collection – Made in USA

Billy Reid Dresses the Modern-Day Dandy. From Gotham magazine. Billy Reid has started his own “Heirloom” line of clothing since late 2012. The Heirloom collection has a tailored section as well as a ready to wear section. The Heirloom collection is based on a retro, American classic style. Billy Reid wanted to capture “real-deal designs that are built to last.” And the best thing about the Heirloom collection – they are all made in the United States.
